Reviews of L'Hombre

There is one review of L'Hombre.
L'Hombre is one of those interesting scents that's like a gourmand, but without being sweet or particularly edible. At its core, it's sawdusty sandalwood paired up with immortelle, so its foundation smells kind of like a wooden board smeared with maple syrup.

But it's a lot more intricate than just that. The top has a shot of rum and something milky that I can't quite place. In the heart, the maple board smell is rendered a bit charred (perhaps that's the coffee or the oud?) and it actually ends up smelling like toasted hazelnuts. Then, a few hours in, a rich caramelized patchouli comes in, giving a creme brulee effect that never gets too sweet because of the lingering wood.

I really like L'Hombre. I'm usually not a big gourmand fan, but this is every bit as much a wood perfume as it is a gourmand, so I appreciate the balance. I'd also like to give credit where credit is due to perfumer Shelly Waddington - this scent could have been a caustic mess in the hands of a lesser nose, but she pulls it off with a skill not always seen in the indie perfume world. If you were a fan of Francis Kurkdjian in his heyday, somehow piecing together elements that simply shouldn't work into brilliant weirdness, I'd highly suggest giving L'Hombre a sniff...
